2017 saw several musical projects undertaken.

Reworked variations from the Dreaming Album were used to make the soundtrack for the Lighting Of The Sydney Opera House Sails for Vivid Festival 2016 along with Badu Gili (meaning ‘water light’ in the language of the traditional owners of Bennelong Point), which accompanies a contemporary aboriginal art projection performed each evening year-round on the western sails of the Sydney opera house.

Then came the composing a new soundtack for The Parrtjima Festival at Alice Springs 2017.

The festival involved five Aboriginal art centres and showcased the work of 20 Aboriginal artists. Parrtjima (pronounced Par-CHee-ma) means ‘lighting up’ and conveys two meanings: physically illuminating an object with light and ‘lighting up’ as in to shed light and understanding on a subject. This public event transformed Alice Springs Desert Park into a mesmerising outdoor gallery of light and sound including a breathtaking illumination of a 300-million-year-old natural canvas, 2km of the majestic MacDonnell Ranges, a series of new installations involving Aboriginal artists from the Central Desert region.

Finally was a fresh soundtrack for The NYE Welcome to country projection onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylons. Cant say too much about this as its top secret, but tune into NYE celebrations on the waterfront. Its gunna be HUGE!
